Forum: movies Subject: Re: new video/audio player 'opt in' is live!

Dear Marjan,

OK, so we found the issue with MendiCoast TV (not related to the new player) -- this was for the flowplayer now "older" embed codes. (We recently updated our serving of missing images to return a 404 response code, and that somehow tangled up serving of thumbnails in general for these embed codes, eek! (that wasn't my change, but it's still our bad for not noticing the breakage).

fixed now for you, too?

and yes, you understand me right. in the new embed codes, the same preference of "i prefer flash more than html5" (or vice versa) on archive.org site will also have that preference for offsite embedded audio/video for that user as well (it's a very small simple cookie set or not set, to make that preference -- and with the new embed codes, any of the small cookies "move around" with the embed. nothing creepy going on here! we require all employees here to ensure all user logs are irreversibly anonymized for our visitors -- we *DONT* want to know what you are reading/watching/listening to! 8-)


hope that's all helpful info, etc.

Dear Tracey,

Thank you for the fix and explanation. Indeed, my thumbs are back!

But concerning the player. Visitors of my site do not know/are not interested as to where these movies reside and how they can choose to view either html or flash, they do not visit archive.org in order to be able to watch the movies on my site. I hope it makes sense to you what I am trying to tell you.
I am afraid I will have to find a solution myself.

Thank you for any helpful comments :-)

Kind regards,

Marjan
